Vietnam index falls 0.4 pct, reduces margin trading

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   lost 0.43 percent to close at 627.66 points on Tuesday, the second fall this week, as investors offloaded shares to
reduce margin trading while two exchange-traded funds (ETF)reviewed their portfolios.
Trading on margin, or investors borrowing funds from brokerages to buy shares, has increased with market's rises in late August, and selling on Tuesday could have been to cut the margin ratio on portfolios, analysts said.
The index has gained strongly since late August, touching a closing high of more than six and a half years before adjusting to linger in between 625 and 630 points since Sept. 9.
 Volume reached 181 million shares on Tuesday, well above the five-day average level of 145 million, Reuters data showed.
"Liquidity was strong as bargain hunting emerged whenever the index fell deeply during the session, which is a positive sign to the market," said analyst Tran Minh Hoang of Vietcombank Securities.
Solid volume was also a result of trading by the Market Vectors Vietnam    and db x-trackers FTSE Vietnam  during their portfolio restructuring week, scheduled to end on Friday, analysts said.

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close

SE Asia Stocks - S'pore posts worst drop since Jan; all eyes on Fed

Southeast Asian stock markets mostly fell on Tuesday as investors awaited a Federal Reserve meeting for clues on U.S. monetary policy, with selling in
large-caps pulling down the Singapore benchmark to its lowest close in more than two months.
Singapore's Straits Times Index   slid 1.2 percent, the biggest daily loss since Jan. 3. It ended at 3,272.62, its lowest close since July 10.
All 30 stocks measured by the index were lower. Shares of Singapore Telecommunications Ltd.  , the most actively traded and the largest firm by market value, dropped 2.1 percent.
The Thai SET index   ended down 0.9 percent at its lowest close in more than two weeks, with interest rate sensitive stocks including banks   and property shares  slipping ahead of the central bank's policy meeting.
 The Bank of Thailand is expected to leave its main interest  rate steady at 2.0 percent on Wednesday, believing the current level can help economic recovery without raising already-high household debt.  
 Indonesia  posted a net foreign outflow worth 522 billion rupiah ($43.65 million), the Philippines   reported a net foreign outflow worth 110.6 million peso ($2.50 million) and Vietnam had net foreign outflows worth 268 billion dong ($12.66 million).
Investors awaited the outcome of the Fed's two-day policy meeting which begins later on Tuesday.
Vietnam's VN Index   lost 0.43 percent as investors offloaded shares to reduce margin trading while two exchange-traded funds (ETF) reviewed their portfolios.
Malaysia was shut for a holiday, resuming trade on Wednesday.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
